T-Mobile and Motorola Announce the CLIQ, Dext

T-Mobile and Motorola have just announced the Motorola CLIQ, Motorola's first foray into the Android game, which will come to T-Mobile in the US during the 4th quarter of 2009.  The CLIQ is an Android phone (that we all once knew as the Morrison) sporting a horizontal slide out keyboard (yes!). Official details on the specs are thin, but we do know that it has the usual smartphone specs:

  • 3G, WiFi
  • 5 megapixel camera
  • 24 fps video recording
  • 3.5 mm headset jack

The CLIQ's primary differentiator is that it will feature the MOTOBLUR service, which deeply integrates multiple social networking services into all corners of the device.

Outside the US, the CLIQ will be known as the "Dext" and available in 2010.  Motorola also said that they intend to announce more Android devices in the coming months.
